Here's the talk I presented at the workshop on "Doing the History of Technology in the 21st Century" at the MIT Museum on October 9, 2013. The workshop, sponsored by the MIT Museum and the Hagley Museum and Library, brought together historians, museum curators, public humanists, and more to talk about how the history of technology is changing - and how it needs to change - to play the role it needs to play as our sources, audiences, media, and interests change. It was partly about the digital, but more general, too.

My talk addressed the question of how do we do our work in a way that makes us part of a larger conversation. It's something I think is important, but with no easy answers. The ground rules are changing.
